Blackburn County Court Bankruptcy Information

Attending Court is the final step of the bankruptcy process. Prior to speaking to the Court and organising a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to weigh up what you can do.

Personal bankruptcy will clear all of your current unsecured debts, but in doing so it is going to remain on your Credit Report for 6 years, which can influence your future borrowing during that timeframe. Another type of insolvency is an IVA, which could be suitable in case you have equity to protect, or a job that is excluded from bankruptcy.

If personal bankruptcy is definitely the right choice for you, then the appropriate documentation will eventually be submitted to your local County Court.

For those living within Blackburn we have included the court details below. You only need to contact the court if you already have everything prepared, including your Statement of Affairs and Debtor's Petition, and you are ready to finalise the Bankruptcy Order.

To arrange a consultation you can complete this online form, and an experienced Advisor will be in touch to assess your situation and advise you accordingly.
